Yankees' Pineda perfect through 6 innings in home opener

Everything was flawless for the New York Yankees in the home opener, from the weather to nearly every pitch coming out of Michael Pineda's right hand.

Perhaps, though, the most savage tweet came from the Rays Twitter account, who responded to Martha's tweet about a ideal game by simply writing, "fake news". Rather than wait until April 16th to use their fifth starter, Joe Girardi announced Jordan Montgomery will be called up to start Wednesday's game, giving Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia an extra day to rest. That said, Montgomery is a genuine talent and I think he'll pitch well in a home game here. "We didn't take advantage of some free passes early on, but our guys kept at it".

According to CBS Sports, New York's Aaron Judge hit a game tying home run, and Starlin Castro's RBI single helped spark a four-run ninth inning for the Yankees as they completed their 7-3 comeback victory against the Baltimore Orioles. But it was Montgomery who had the eye of Girardi, and all the young man had to do was make sure there were no hiccups along the way. Longoria tipped his helmet to Pineda after reaching second. The crowd was treated to quite the show, with Pineda retiring the first 20 Rays he faced in order, taking a ideal game into the seventh inning. Tampa Bay is hitting.271, has scored 33 runs and hit seven home runs after Jesus Sucre, Corey Dickerson and Steven Souza Jr. went deep Sunday. The Yankees can't feel too comfortable with their current rotation situation, I imagine, and Montgomery has a chance to ease those concerns somewhat. "His changeup's good. And when he locates his fastball, it's really good".

"He was doing a good job of mixing his slider in and putting it in a good spot where it was just the bottom of the zone or diving down below", Morrison said.

Two batters later, Evan Longoria got a hit and broke up the no-no. Souza has been the Rays' best hitter so far and takes a.417 average into Monday - just in time for another trip to NY.

The two teams will clash this afternoon at 1pm in Yankee Stadium as the Yankees will play their home opener. Cobb beat Pineda in Florida last week. Pineda will be on the mound Monday for the Yankees, who hope his second start goes better than Wednesday's start in Tampa Bay. Of the 87 pitchers who have logged 400 innings over the past three seasons, Pineda's 3.42 FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching) ranks 23rd, just below Chris Archer and Carlos Martinez. Pineda's last win was August 5 against the Cleveland Indians and since then he is 0-4 with a 4.33 ERA. He only lasted until there were two outs in the 4th inning. "I feel good, though", Pineda said.

Will that happen? Ask us again in five days.

"He deserves it; I knew he had great stuff, and he was working on his consistency, especially the slider", Higashioka said.

In his first outing this year, Snell put up a loss against Toronto with 6.2 innings, three hits and four earned. He walked three and struck out six over seven innings. Baseball Twitter then did what Baseball Twitter does and let Stewart know that she "jinxed" Pineda's perfecto bid, because she didn't adhere to baseball's unwritten rules and stay quiet about a ideal game or no-hitter that's in process. It was Cobb's first win since August 21, 2014, against Detroit when the right-hander compiled seven straight wins.
